You probably already noticed the price of gas continues to go up according to AAA, the national average is now almost 2.62 dollars, economist4 Robert Shawler told the New York Times, higher pump prices could effectively strip away all the benefits of the President's payroll5 tax cut. People in Michigan and the Mid6 Western are really taking it hard, there have been a lot of refinery7 problems there, it's $2. 93 in Michigan where unemployment is 13 percent.

The federal government could soon be policing the tobacco giants, a bipartisan senate bill would allow the FDA to regulate what's in cigarette and tobacco products, it could ban claims such as mild or low tar8 as well as restrict tobacco advertising9. The Senate could vote as early as today on that measure. The House has already passed a similar bill. President Obama supports it.
